Travel restrictions in Utah have been lifted for the second time in less than a month after the fire in the state’s western Utah area killed at least 30 people and destroyed hundreds of homes.

The first lifted travel restrictions came in late November.

Utah Gov.

Gary Herbert signed an executive order allowing U.S. citizens to travel to and from Utah to visit family, friends, or work.


Herbert said in a statement that the order allows travelers to visit relatives, friends and co-workers and to use their own vehicle to travel.

The second lifted restrictions comes after the state has had to deal with wildfires for the past six months, the Associated Press reported.

Utah has had a high death toll from wildfires, with more than 20,000 people dead or missing.
